An interdisciplinary and intersectional initiative that aims to address Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in STEM

After the success of our Breaking Barriers in STEM: Through the Looking Glass event in 2020, Research Pools ScotCHEM, SICSA, SULSA and SINAPSE created working groups to address the following EDI issues:
  • Mental Health and Wellbeing
  • Decolonising STEM
  • Expanding Our Reach (International Support)
  • The Leaky Pipeline
On behalf of these groups, we would like to invite you to Breaking Barriers in STEM: Down the Rabbit Hole, an EDI knowledge-exchange. This event will begin at 12:00 pm with a networking lunch followed by talks from organisations working to resolve issues in each thematic area between 1:30-3:30 pm.
The networking lunch will be held in an exhibition space so we invite your EDI committee to host a stall during this time to provide information on EDI activities happening on your campus.
We want this event to bring those passionate about EDI together to share ideas and experiences in tackling some of the barriers and how collectively, we can make STEM a place where everyone is welcome.
Date: Friday 29th April 2022
